Digitial Inclusion Event

On Tuesday 29th November Ennerdale and Kinniside Parish Council will be hosting a presentation by Phil Ruston of Connecting Cumbria.  Phil will be raising awarenes of the availability of Superfast Broadband within the parish, and explaining how to get the best from it. The event will be from 7:00pm until 9:00pm , at the Ennerdale Centre.

Superfast Broadband now available!

The exchange and local cabinet have now been connected for superfast fibre broadband.  If you wish to take advantage of the new connections, please speak to your internet provider (or shop around) for provision of fibre broadband.  We are currently making arrangements with BT for them to host an evening session on Digital Inclusion, which should help answer any questions for those of you considering the move to fibre broadband.  More details will be announced once arrangements have been made

Parish Updates - an apology

Due to a momentary lack of concentration, 2 errors had crept into the parish update we recently circulated. 1.  Parish clerk contact number should be 861270 2.  Meetings are held at St Mary’s church, not St Michaels Neighbourhood Watch After many years of coordinating the Watch scheme, David Wood will be stepping down, and the Reverend Ian Parker, and Councillor Ian Topping will take over the duties.  We will be updating the database of registered members, so please keep an eye out for our leaflet.

Speedwatch Volunteers

The Speedwatch group are currently on the lookout for more volunteers to help run the traffic monitoring scheme.  If you are interested or would like to know more, please contact Councillor Ian Topping.

Multi Use Games Area

Friday 1st July saw Jamie Reed Mp conduct the official opening of the new MUGA. Full story available courtesy of the Whitehaven News, here. The equipment at Bridge Park has now been decommissioned and the area returned to the Church, and will become a quiet garden space.
